The options that can allow people to be eco-friendly are more easily available than ever, from sustainable clothing materials to more environmentally friendly fuel options. Improvements in technology have made a lot of things possible. These opportunities include home comfort systems, too! This is great news, especially as we learn more about the impact that things like refrigerant and burning oil have on the environment
The installation and use of a geothermal heating and cooling system is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to keep your indoor environment just right. If you are curious about what makes geothermal systems what they are, or curious if one of these systems is right for you, we are happy to explain more.
A System That Works With the Planet
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are a type of comfort system that uses the relatively stable temperatures within the Earth’s crust to help regulate the temperature in your home. This is done using a coil that is filled with refrigerant or antifreeze and water combined with an indoor heat pump system. Using this setup, a geothermal system can move heat out of the house or into it without creating harmful byproducts to the environment.
This system offers great benefits to yourself and the planet. For one thing, it is always reliable, even in extremely cold weather. For another, it is highly effective, thanks to the relatively stable temperatures that are found underground. Lastly, it’s able to serve the home for a longer period of time than many other systems would. In fact, while the heat pump of this system may last around 10-15 years, the underground coil can easily last upwards of 20 years.
Installation Isn’t Cheap, But You Save More in the Long Run
Geothermal HVAC systems aren’t cheap to install. That’s why it is advised that these systems are installed when a home is being constructed. This isn’t always an option though.
If you have the budget then it is a good idea to consider installing a geothermal system. The process is intensive but will pay off over the years. This is because you’ll end up with better comfort and even lower energy bills. The amount of money you will save in the long run since you will end up using far less energy each month will offset the cost of the installation within around 5 years.
Your Potential Energy Savings
You stand to save extra energy with this system installment in two different ways.
The first way is through reduced system use. Geothermal systems can more effectively control the temperature in your home without a huge battle with outside temperatures. The second way is with reduced energy usage. Geothermal systems use far less electricity to adjust the temperature indoors than other systems.
